4Cs Projects at Pafuri Camp
Wilderness Safaris has partnered with the Makuleke community in a 45-year mutually beneficial lease of Pafuri Camp. Aside from the concession fee, the Makuleke benefit from skills transfer, job creation, training, and community development projects.
In 1969, the Nationalist Government forcibly removed the Makuleke people from their ancestral lands around Pafuri. In 1998, the Makuleke won their land back, and in 2003 they partnered with Wilderness Safaris in building and managing Pafuri Camp and Pafuri Walking Trail.
